Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta - THILITHBWDGE HERAID - Wednesday, January 20, 1971 Hamilton Junior High project Operation Quest: everything in stew but kids "The trip was wild, the food was awful, and the tea was worse." Such was the general reaction of students from Hamilton Junior High School who participated in "Operation "Quest," dn int r i c a t e part of their Outdoor Education course. "Operation Quest" was an experiment by the school to try and evaluate the merit of such an outing, and to possibly incorporate it into the regular school program. The students were transported by bus to Elkwater Provincial Park in the Cypress Hills. Here they were exposed to such things as day and night hikes, shelter - building, outdoor cooking and eating, ice fishing, navigation, woodsman-ship, and fire - lighting and care. S. Kendrick Smith, vice principal of Hamilton, and co-or-dinator of the outing, says about the education system, "the junior high school level is most certainly a keystone era of the formative years and Operation Quest was designed with this thought well to the forefront. He added, "suppose a group of 40 co - educational young people were given the challenge of completely organizing a safari in the dead of winter with all the attendant organizational problems? "Surely we must attempt to move the traditional situation into a challenging outdoor school where application of learning is the watchword." He thought that hundreds of children, teachers and books could be moved into the wilds where "school" is not "school" but a 24 hour packed learning experience. In this way, a mer- New quarters in Vancouver Home for skid road girls VANCOUVER (CP) - Hope, in the form of Nasaika Lodge, a refuge for down-and-out Indian girls, may finally throttle one of the community's most fatal diseases-skid road. During the last year, more than 20 native girls have died on skid road. They suffered from its deadly symptoms - malnutrition, alcohol, tuberculosis, drugs, pneumonia-all flourishing in ideal breeding grounds. Six years ago Margaret White, herself an Indian, founded Nasaika Lodge but it was 1970 when the girls began moving into new shiny quarters in Vancouver. The house is warm, friendly, with ample kitchen and bathroom facilities and re-c e i v e s financial assistance from First Citizens' Fund, Vancouver Foundation and the National Housing Administration. It was through these outlets that the $50,000 home was purchased. The lodge is a refuge, a means of escape, which accommodates 14 girls comfortably. Mrs. White left some time ago after a dispute with the board of directors over conditions. She returned last year as a member of the board - on her terms. Those are that no age limits be set, that pregnant girls; and any THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "Our investigation of you was rather thorough.., eon you explain why you failed to repay the 15 cents you borrowed from a Mr. Beansey Fuller in the seventh grade?"

The lodge is a far cry from a bed under an alley staircase, a hard bench or a crowded all-night cafe. And Mom, as Mrs. White is affectionately called, doesn't wait for the girls to come to her. PICKS THEM UP Every week she can be seen driving along a downtown street in her little red car-ready to pick up any Indian girl in trouble. Fine mother I am," she says jokingly. "All my daughters are on skid road." She visits beer parlors, stopping just to chat, and to keep in touch. She rescues sick, miserable young women from filthy skid road rooms and she cries with frustration when they die. "What can I do? I feel so frustrated and helpless. I just see them go-gradually, down, down. 'I don't know as many girls on skid road as I used to- they've all died." A recent call sent Mi's. White to a local beer parlor. A young woman had telephoned her earlier with the words: "Come and get me. I don't want to die here." Next stop was another beer parlor. Mary was there. Mary was happy to see Mom. Life seemed good for Mary. She had just smoked some grass and was drinking beer. One of her friends died recently. Another lies paralysed in a hospital. ger could be made be t w e e n j "school" and life for a short while. The project was endorsed by the school board last September, and throughout October and November groups of students worked out the necessary arrangements for getting hardware (tools, axes, saws, cooking utensils); software (clothing, sleeping accommodations); food, (diets and storage); and topography and conditions, (such as maps, temperature conditions, flora, etc. Mr. Smith was aided in the actual excursion by Mrs. Ruth Daw, a teacher at Hamilton, and Fred Tyrrell, a student at LCI, and a member of the St. John Ambulance Brigade. An enormous amount of assistance was received from the park wardens at Elkwater. Mrs. Daw will assist in meeting and showing of slides to acquaint the parents and any interested people with the actual trip. This is to be held tonight at 8 at Hamilton Junior High School. Finally, after all arrangements had been completed, and everything packed away, the group arrived in Elkwater Provincial Park, only to discover that half of their food supply had been forgotten.

Mr. Tyrrell, who assisted in the shelter - building group had this to say in his diary: "We are getting quite comfortably settled and many of us could stay indefinitely - although we do miss the butter, etc., and other foods wanting in our diet. The cooking group is going to 'build' a stew of the potatoes we didn't eat, the leftover soft - boiled eggs, onions, carrots, turnips, a half dozen wieners, ham hocks, etc. The warmed - over tea with added water really hit the spot." As for the cooking ability of the girls, he said, "the girls are tying into the stew making now with as much gusto as they did the wood - sawing - what they lack in know-how, they are making up in action." Some of the other comments received from the students about the trip were: "the stew was good and the hikes and War Games were educational and fun, give me a stomach pump and I'll be fine. Everything else was great, especially the War Games." "I learned a lot on this trip, (How to appreciate good food), But Shelly Steed seemed to have her own personal problem. "Great time, except I think lost 10 pounds ..." At the end of the trip, Mr Smith had this to say about the students. "They were hun gry, cold and were facing adversity. They became a sound and ringing reply to the critics of youth. They were a team For four and one half hours in the bitter cold they constructed 'lean to' type dwellings and not once did a student have to be reprimanded. This was the first time as a leader that I felt proud of them all." He was pleasantly surprised at the self - discipline of the group, and there seemed to be more helping hands extended (to the weak) "than I had seen within any situation before since the war." He termed the "Operatio Quest" as "a good ending paving the way hopefully for a new beginning."

Interested individuals at the university had been asked to contact his office, and only a total of 15 families had done so. Out of the 15 families there were seven children of students eligible, five staff members' children, and five faculty members' children. In view of these results, and the lack of accommodations and funds, Mr. Russell said that the project will be set aside until next fall when the matter will be looked into again. It was hoped that some arrangements could be made in the next fall semester in order to provide this service to all those parents at the University. NDP ivhip performs ceremony OTTAWA (CP) - Stanley Knowles, veteran MP and acknowledged expert on House of Commons rules, departed from his normal duties to dispense the rules of matrimony.

Mr. Knowles performed the marriage at Dominion Chalmers United Church for Dr. Douglas Waugh, dean of the medical college at Queen's University, Kingston, Ont, and Sheila Duff, great grand-niece of Sir Lyman Duff.
